Izmir Port is very convenient in terms of freight and transportation, this means no port of Izmir is not a competitor of Turkey for the year 2023 put the $ 500 billion full capacity of all ports in the region in case of realization of export target can work, in this sense port from a It was also emphasized that there was no competition.
"Izmir's share will increase exponentially"
Geza Dologh, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Izmir Branch of the Chamber of Shipping, stated that the future of Izmir Port was secured with these investments.
Noting that the short-term investments determined by Binali Yıldırım, Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications for İzmir Port, have been completed and medium-term investments have started, Dologh stated that the port will become internationally assertive in 2015, when these investments are expected to be completed.
Explaining that some ships preferred the ports in Aliağa in the past due to the inability to make these investments in İzmir Port, Dologh said:
“After all, the ports in Aliağa are the ports of Izmir. Fortunately, there were ports in Aliağa when there was a congestion. Otherwise, there would be a big problem. Container market figures are increasing rapidly. In the future, there will be enough container volume for all ports in Izmir. There must be a sweet competition between these ports. When you look at the total number of ports in İzmir and Aliağa last year, you will see a 10 percent increase in handling amount. As İzmir Port increases its capacity, these increase percentages will increase exponentially.
